Unless you’ve been living under a rock lately, if you’re in the tech industry odds are you’ve heard of PIPA and SOPA, currently making their way through the Senate and the House, respectively.
A little experiment I created, since my employer has an interest in QR Codes. My new QR Redirect Plugin lets you redirect a WordPress permalink anywhere you want, and never have to update the QR code that points at it.

The site’s former host, College Publisher, was no longer meeting the paper’s needs (and wants), and on top of that, it’s future was uncertain (it had recently been […]
